From 1660 to the late 19th century filigree was ornamental work made with grains or beads. It was very popular in Italy, France and Portugal as well as India and Asia. Today filigree/overlay is a form of intricate metalwork usually of fine wire of gold, silver, copper or metal, and is used to decorate various surfaces. Filigree can be applied to any ornamental openwork of delicate or intricate design. The beauty of filigree craftsmanship is undeniable.
The first Deco Crest pens were manufactured by Conklin Pen Company in 1905. Through the years the Deco Crest kept its place in Conklin’s collection by virtue of its beauty and durability. The Conklin Pen Company originally released the ever successful Endura in 1924 and the Endura line continued to expand and grow. Based on the original models, the Endura has all the aesthetic design features which made the pen such a timeless classic.
By combining these two famous models, Conklin is proud to introduce Endura Deco Crest. Crafted from hand-made European high-grade, hand-turned and hand-polished resin and accented with metal overlay, the barrel brilliantly reflects light off of its surface, enhancing the stunning colors. Lustrous plating adorns the clip, band, trim and overlay, enhancing the elegance of each Endura pen.
